Discovery Academy of Science is a public charter school approved by the Pinellas County School District.

Our school will ultimately be a K-12 system. Currently, we are accepting students in Grades K-7 

 

OUR MISSION is to provide students with a well-rounded education with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.)          

Our goal is lead students to excellent academic outcomes.

OUR PHILOSOPHY is to utilize state-of-the-art technology, in a stimulating environment with teachers who are empowered to provide the most effective instructional strategies to maximize each child's educational experience.

Individual Attention -- Making Sure Students “GET IT”

  • Low student-to-teacher ratio and support, even free tutoring (if needed)
  • Hands-on learning in regular classes and lab-settings, where young minds get inspired
  • Innovative instructional methods that have proven track records
  • Regular evaluation to insure students don’t get behind or aren’t being held back -- using the best evaluational resources available, including MAP Testing (Measures of Academic Progress) from NWEA (The Northwest Evaluation Association, a national leader, approved by the State of Florida.) SEE MORE ON M.A.P. on our ACADEMICS page.

We work hard to make sure our graduates are prepared for the future. One of the major requirements is to help students learn how to learn – to have critical thinking and communication skills necessary for success in the world of tomorrow.
